upon the crossing, and was struck by a passing train, re- 
ceiving injuries from which she died a few weeks later. 

A suit has been brought against the Town for this cause, 
and damages claimed to the amount of $4000 : we have 
retained counsel to defend it. We are advised that the 
Town is not liable, but tiiis can only l)e determined by the

We strongly urge that all bills against the Town be 
presented for payment within the year in which they 
become due.

Overseers' Report. 



The property of the Town in the Almshouse Department 
is in good condition. As is well known, our Almshouse has 
been for several years past under tlie good management of 
Superintendent Allen, aided by the very efficient and valu- 
able services of his excellent wife, who has peculiar ability 
for the successful discharge of the complicated and often- 
times difficult duties of her position as matron. 

There has been for the past year, as compared with the 
preceding, a small decrease in the number of the inmates, 
and also of tlie expenses of the Almshouse. 

The inmates have been generally healthy, except a few of 
the aged who are very feeble and need constant care. 

Of the younger ones, nine of the twelve under twenty 
years of age attend school. We repeat from a former Report 
the opinion that the state laws ought to be changed so as to 
authorize the Overseers to place children in homes and 
families where they can be brought up free from almshouse 
influences. 

Several of tlic inmates are mildly insane, and we think it 
advisable to provide suitable accommodations for them, and 
for several others now in State Hospitals at large expense to 
the town. 

The "tramp'' nuisance has increased. Some way ought 
to be found to utilize the wasted energies of these wandering 
loafers by compelling them to work enough to compensate 
the town for the expense incurred on their account. 

It will l)e noticed that the amount expended for relief out 
of Almshouse is in excess of that of former years. That was 
caused partly by an increase in tlie number aided, and partly 
by the payment of outstanding bills.

Road Commissioner's Report. 



We respectfully present the followinjz- Re})ortorour doings 
for tlie past year : 

BILLS APPROVED. 

Highways and hridges, •t>8027 25 

Sidewalks, 993 10 

Removing Snow, 72i5 26 

MAPLE AVENUE. 

At tlie annual Town Meeting, in Marcli last, it was voted 
that a sum not exceeding !^800 be taken from tlie Highway 
and Bridges appi-opriation, and used in grading and gravel- 
ling Maple Avenue. On looking over the ground, we decided 
that the work could be done for less than the amount 
stated. We have stoned a large part of the road bed, and 
thoroughly graded and gravelled the roadway, at a cost of 
1414.50. 

WALNUT AVENUE. 

Special Appropriation, $300 00 

We cut down the hill on this street about 2J feet, graded 
and gravelled it the entire length, and put in a stone culvert, 
all at a cost of -1^291.88. 

PIKE STREET EXTENSION. 
A special appropriation of -^700 was made for the exten- 
sion of Pike Street to Chestnut Street. We decided not to 
build this extension according to the })lan left in our hands, 
but to relocate it on a diiferent line, which has been done, 
and a new plan prepared for the consideration of the Town. 



MAIN STREET POOT-BRIDGE. 

A ?])Ocial appropriation of $'2d() was made for ilie con- 
struction of a sidewalk foot-bridge on tlie westerly side of 
the Main Street bridue over tbe Sliawshin River. The work 
was done by George S. Cole, at a cost of f 249.91. 

Tlic bridge over the Shawsliin River, near H. B. Abbott's 
jjouse, has ])een replanked, at a cost of $148.64. 

Nearly -i^SOO was expended in repairing the roads whicli 
were damaged by the heavy lains of last September. 

By advice of citizens of the town we have expended $300 
in establishing grades of streets and procuring plans of the 
same. 



We recommend tlie foUowino; amounts for tlie ensuino- 



year 



For Highways and Bridges, $8000 00 

For Sidewalks, 1000 00

Report of Road Commissioners on 
Railroad Street. 



Railroad Street was laid out in February 1887, by K. A. 
Hale, civil engineer, under the direction of tlie Selectmen. 
The ground being frozen and covered with snow, lie was 
unable to determine just how many culverts were needed, 
and in his estimate he only provided for one new one, of" 
50 feet in length, and the extension of the old one over 
Rogers Brook, 25 feet. We found it necessary to take out 
the old culvert and build a new and larger one the whole 
width of the street, whicli work was thorouglily done at an 
extra expense of -f 100. 

The angle of the other culvert was sucli that we had 
to build it 80 feet in length, instead of 50 feet, as first 
estimated ; the 30 extra feet costing 89 cents per running 
foot=-f26.70. 

We also built another culvert 50 feet long, costing 89 cents 
per running foot = 1*44.50. 

We have put in two Akron drain-pipe culverts, one of 
10 inch -O feet long, the other of 12 inch 59 feet long, at a 
cost of 150. 

And we have Ijuilt a substantial face retinning wall, 25 
rods in length, averaging about five feet in height, at a cost 
of ^150. 

•The engineers' estimate of the co>t of tlie work, and tlie 
appropriation was $2870. 



56 



The cost of the extra work not provided for in the estimate 
was 1371.20. 

The whole amount expended on the street was 'f2S89.07,

Report of the Chief Engineer 

OF THK 

Fire Department. 



To THE Board of Selectmen : 

Gentlemen^ — In accoidance witli tlic Regulations of tlie 
Fire Department I submit tlie following Report. 

The force of the Department consists of five Engineers, 
sixteeQ members of Andover Steamer No. 1, sixteen members 
of J. P. Bradlee Steamer No. 2, and ten members of B. F. 
Smith Hook and Ladder company. 

The apparatus consists of one third-class steam fii-e-engine, 
one sixth-size Sibley stenm fire-engine, one hand-engine, with 
liose-carriages for each ; one horse hose-carriage, one hook- 
and-ladder truck. Tlierc arc about thirty-three huridred 
feet of hose in good condition ; the i-eniainder, about ten 
hundred feet, cannot be depecnded upon. 

There have been thirteen alarms of fire during the past 
year (1887), as follows: 
Feb. 20. Joseph ^\. Bradley's store. 
April 22. William C. Donald's factory. 
May 11. John Stack's shed. 
May 17. Washington Mills, Lawrence, to which men and 

Steamer No. 1 responded. 
May 3, 17, 20, and 23. Woods in Frye Village. 
May 23. Woods in Ballard Vale. 
July 6. Walter Pettengill's barn. 
July 26. Stone House. 
Nov. 29. Mansion House. 
Dec. 7. John Mears's house. 



60 

Tlie past year tlie Department lias been very much troubled 
iii regard to horses. I recommend the purchase of three 
horses for use in the Fire and Street Departments. 

At the last annual March meeting the Town voted twenty- 
five hundred dollars for a complete System of Fire Alarm. 
At a subse(jucnt meeting they reduced it to five hundred 
dollars, and appointed the Board of Engineers a committee 
to have chai-ge of the same. Witii that amount we have 
been able to connect the two Engine-houses : but we consider 
the system in its infancy, and hope the Town will in the near 
future see the necessity of completing the same. 

1 recommend that 't2r>00 be appropriated for the run- 
ning expenses of the Fii'C Department the ensuing year.

Report of Cemetery Committee 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their Annual 
Report, with statement of receipts and expenditures for the 
year ending Feb. 6tli, 1888. 

There has been a new entrance and driveway made to the 
receiving tomb, making it much easier of access during the 
winter. It was found that the basin that was intended for a 
pond could not be made to hold water without a large 
expense. It was decided to fill the basin, which has been 
done. The walks and avenues have been cleaned. 

No wood has been sold during the past year. Three burial 
lots have been sold. 

The face-wall should be extended, and further filling of 
the basin and other improvements made that may be needed 
to keep the premises in good order. 

We therefore respectfully ask for the usual appropriation 
of iSOO, with the proceeds of such sales as may be made 
from the premises during the ensuing year.
